It’s Christmas!

Christmas is a time of great joy and generosity, and we at The Big Issue Foundation are proud to have been given the time and talents of some wonderful people to help generate more support than ever for our vendors this Christmas.

We’re delighted to announce three fantastically festive songs that are supporting our work and our vendors this year!

“The Twelve Days of Christmas” sung by Big Issue vendors

Thanks to overwhelming support from Fold7 we are thrilled to share our first ever song that is sung by our vendors. Fold7 were joined by Christopher Timothy, Big Issue Founder John Bird, The Big Issue Foundation Team and a bunch of brilliant vendors for a full day’s filming to make this idea come to life. We are so pleased with the result and hope it brings you lots of Christmas cheer!

“I love you like Christmas” Big Secret Sound

The latest single by The Big Secret Sound, ‘I Love You Like Christmas’, was written and dedicated to everyone who will be homeless at Christmas, with the proceeds going to The Big Issue Foundation.

“Santa’s Coming Round” Glenn Hodge Banned

Songwriter Glenn Hodge, inspired by a friend who set up a street paper in Oslo, has penned a lively festive folk number called ‘Santa’s Coming Round’ and is making the single available as a free download. Glenn is encouraging those who like to song to make a donation to The Big Issue Foundation.
